MISS VIOLENCE is a subtitled Greek language drama about the effects of a young girl's apparent suicide on her family.

Theme

The central theme of child abuse presents a relentlessly despairing view of the world. Children are brought up in a culture of abuse that includes sexual abuse by a parent and other adults, and physical and psychological abuse.

Violence

A scene of sexual violence shows a young teenage girl being raped by two strangers, and by her father. The girl is topless and there are fleeting glimpses of her breasts as she is thrust into from behind. There is no strong sexual detail, but the psychological impact of the scene, and the abuse it represents, is strong. The actress playing the part was over 18 at the time of filming. There is another scene showing an old man leading a young girl, who is under 10 years old, into a room, implying that he is to sexually abuse her. However, no abuse is shown.

The film also contains several scenes of self harm, including a teenager cutting herself on the hand and inner thigh, with some blood visible. There is also detail of the bloody aftermath of a child's suicide, as well as the aftermath of a murder. Frequent scenes of domestic, physical and emotional abuse to adults and children occur throughout.
